‘Life of Brian’ – Still relevant? — 1 Comment

  1. Hi,

    I remember seeing this film many years ago and loving it.

    Sadly, though, another such movie is unlikely ever to be made again – not just because it was unrepeatable, but because the climate these days has changed entirely in terms of how the media dare approach religion, especially after the widespread riots and killings in response to the Danish cartoons.

    Which is a pity. Life of Brian was a superb movie, incredibly funny, and though banned and picketed against in some places at the time, is now sometimes even shown by churches to encourage people to come along and learn more about Christianity and who Jesus actually was.

    And yes, I remember at school, almost 30 years ago, my classmates putting on their best Monty Python voices for “He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!”. Wonderful!

    All the best,
